What Exactly Do Developmental Screenings Entail?
Dr. Jones can examine your kid’s growth and development over time using developmental screenings. These examinations also monitor the developmental milestones that your child achieves.
During every well-child visit, your kid is subjected to developmental testing. More regular screenings may be required if Dr. Jones fears a problem with your child’s development because of premature birth, exposure to environmental risks such as lead, or pre-existing health concerns.
What Developmental Tests Does Your Kid Require?
Dr. Jones performs developmental screenings for your kid depending on their medical history and age. She assesses various facets of your child’s development, including:
- Adaptive abilities
- Problem-solving abilities
- Fine motor skills
- Gross motor skills
Any signs that your kid is not meeting developmental milestones or is developing slowly may necessitate additional evaluation.
What Are Some of the Conditions that Can Trigger Developmental Delays?
There are a variety of problems that can impede children’s growth and development. Examples of pediatric developmental concerns include:
- Intellectual disability
- Cerebral palsy
- Down syndrome
Dr. Jones also provides particular testing for illnesses such as ADHD and autism spectrum disorders.
What Exactly is ADHD?
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a prevalent childhood mental illness that can persist into adulthood. Your child’s illness makes it hard for him or her to concentrate at school or home to accomplish the task required.
ADHD also prompts your kid to move constantly, making it difficult for them to stay at one location and finish school or homework. Your kid might struggle in school or be constantly in trouble for interrupting class or having incomplete or missing work.
Is ADHD Curable?
Although there is no cure for ADHD, Dr. Jones can design a personalized care plan to manage your kid’s symptoms and enhance their life quality.
Anybody who actively cares for your kid, including teachers, caregivers, and family members, is usually involved in ADHD management. Dr. Jones can collaborate with the adults in your kid’s life to help them modify their habits and learn more effectively.
Sometimes, prescription drugs can help reduce some of your kid’s symptoms, making it much easier for them to remain still and concentrate on particular tasks.
